Free Trial Version – Why the Cross? – Week 1
We are so glad that you are interested in knowing a little more about Kid Nation and what we offer!
How do I get started?
The KNM Website
Along with the files, we always have notes on the website of what the series is about, teaching tools, and anything else that may be helpful to you. Like this, we have memory verse cards and songs associated with this series. Click here for more.
Here’s what is written for “Why the Cross”:
WHY THE CROSS!????
Why did Jesus HAVE to die on the cross? WE get into the plans and purposes of God and of the enemy. We learn the power of what happened before, during and after the cross. It’s the month when it’s OK to ask “WHY”!
WE also have a FUN game we play all month long!! Find the CROSS!!! Download the extras if you want your kids to FIND THE CROSS and when they do they get a puzzle to complete and earn mucho prize bucks!!!
This month, if you have the budget for it, hand out candy cross bracelets to those who answer questions correctly or for kids who you choose to win the Quiet Seat Prize. (You’ll read more about this in your order of service.) Here’s where we bought them from: Candy Cross Bracelets from Oriental Trading Company
And of course, if God gives you anything that you think works great for your group that isn’t included in what is offered here, let us know! We always welcome ideas that may help other churches reach their kids when they get to this series!
Week 1: What happened leading up to the cross.
Week 2: What happened on the cross.
Week 3: What happened after the cross.
Week 4: What is ours because of the cross!!!
First of all, there are a ton of worship and praise songs about the cross! We put in two great ones, but if God puts another song on your heart, or the kids already know and love another song, don’t hesitate – put it in! It’s as simple as clicking on the current worship song in keynote, clicking delete, then dragging and dropping the new song in. Oh, and don’t forget to resize the song, so it fits your screen!
For example, let’s use ‘Your Cross’ by Elevation Worship
(fun moves makes this song SUPER impactful)
